Chris Cooley has been with the Washington Redskins for so long that he practically is up for tenure at this point, so for him to say something like what he apparently said in an interview with "The Sports Junkies" on 106.7 The Fan speaks volumes. SB Nation's Redskins blog Hogs Haven noted the quote Cooley gave to indicate this.
Cooley on Junkies: "This is the best team I've been around since I've been here. Hardest working."
Cooley has been with the Redskins since 2004. While the Redskins have certainly been a laughingstock a lot of those years, they did make two playoff appearances and were close to reaching the 2005 NFC Championship Game. If Cooley really believes this year's team is better, then that's quite something.
